A lot of people are breathless on Cook’s moving Barney Frank from “likely democrat” to “lean democrat”.

Anyone who has been actually paying attention to this race on the ground has seen for weeks that all the momentum has been Sean Bielat way.

Anyone looking at Bumper stickers in the state over the last two years noticed a change.

Anyone looking at the competitive REPUBLICAN primaries and a VERY successful write in campaign with little or no state GOP help knew that something was happening.

Anyone who has been doing calling and canvasing in Massachusetts knows that unenrolled (Independents) are breaking Republican all over the state, and 51% of the people in this state are registered “unenrolled”.

The Big Red Wave is coming and it will wash over this state up and down the tickets, only the considerable number of 3rd party candidates (have they had some help?) put some of the republican wins in doubt. I’ve been making this case for a month and people have discounted it.

It’s going to be a long night for the donkeys and Massachusetts is not going to provide a whole lot of comfort.
